Nodds & Nends: Top TV 2015, Quidditch Beer Pong, Miniatures, and a Troll T-Shirt

Check out this article by NerdBastards for their Top Ten TV Shows of 2015. I have to say, the one’s I’ve watched at that list, I do love. I may need to check out the others.

You can buy a Quidditch Beer Pong set, once they manufacture more that is, they are currently sold out. Still. This is a thing, peeps. [via The Mary Sue]


I read this really cool article on WordPress Discover about Photographing Miniature Worlds and Jennifer Nichole Wells. A cool article and she makes some amazing scenes. I just love them! I’m totally into miniatures now after making so many cool things for my nieces. I may have to start my own haunted doll house or something.

Bittersweet Icecream

I saw this shirt on Facebook and thought some of you all might like it. Another hurt only nerds/dorks/geeks/fandoms will feel. I definitely am going to need to add this to my collection. Here’s a link to buy this OMG It’s R2D2! I loved Him in Star Trek t-shirt. You are welcome.

Who will hate this?

Doctor Who Fans: That is a Dalek, not R2D2

Star Wars Fans: That is a Dalek, not R2D2, and R2D2 was in Star Wars, not Star Trek.

Star Trek Fans: The images on this have nothing to do with Star Trek. R2D2 is from Star Wars. For some reason these fandoms hate each other. The image is of a Dalek which is a Doctor Who icon.

Who will love this?


Anyone with a sense of humor.

People who like to troll the geek/nerd/dork/fandom community for being so uptight about their fandoms.

Geeky Holiday Haul

The holidays are upon us and I have recieved a lot of wonderful geeky gifts I just have to tell everyone about! I got a TARDIS hoodie that I have wanted for ages! I got a Doctor Who mug which I’ve used the every day to watch the TARDIS disappear for coffee time.  But, perhaps the most unique gift is the Doctor Who t-shirt I posted about earlier on this blog that my best friend sent me. It is soooo awesome and really does glow in the dark!

It’s like my people know me.😉

I wore this Where the Wild Things Are T-shirt to work today. It was a present from my mother who has always been a huge supporter of my geeky side.  I love that I can wear this to work, yes that’s my hand made TARDIS cork board behind me, and I even have a squishy TARDIS toy that lights up sitting on my desk. No one even blinks that I have these things. Either this is a testament to the power of me being able to get away with anything because I work hard, or people are so used to my weirdness it doesn’t even register anymore.


Nodds & Nends: Mouse Mingle, All The Feels, and Don’t Forget Doctor Who Tee

Mousing Mingle– Disney Fans looking for love need look no further. Yes, this is a thing and it is kind of adorable. [via The Mary Sue]

Do you follow Jonathan Carroll, author, on Facebook? You should. He posts some really cool things. Like the picture below.

Reasons Why My Wife is Crying post by Aaron Gillies is awesomely funny . His wife sounds adorbs. Also, please note he got her permission before posting, so she doesn’t mind being viewed as someone who cares about all the feels. Spousal permission before posting is important, I’m still trying to convince my husband to let me post the video where  I try to tickle him with my feet and get stabbed by a fork for the effort. His stop-tickling-me-laugh is just too ridiculously cute to not get on video. Since I’m the one who looks like a brat, I don’t know why he’s having issues. (Don’t worry, I’ll keep working on him.) [via Bored Panda]

Don’t Forget Doctor Who themed tee glows in the dark and is too awesome for words! This website has some other awesome nerdy tees that are sure to make your geeky heart pitter and patter. No I didn’t get compensation for this, but I should have. Please, give me the thing! [via TeeTurtle]

Wolverine Jacket

This weekend we were out and about enjoying a neighborhood we haven’t explored much in the Dallas area and walked into an antique mall, of course. There I found the most amazing denim jacket ever!


Some of you may have seen this picture on my Instagram or Titter, but I had an awesome comment by a Facebook friend that I just had to share.

Tim: wolverine always did have a thing for jean  ……  jackets. 

This is why nerdy friends you met while working at a bookstore are the best.

My Doctor Who Day and Outfit

I recently acquired a Doctor Who themed phone case of the TARDIS in the Starry Night scene of Van Gogh’s, I got it to match my necklace and inspired by these two items I crafted an outfit last week. I walked into work and showed off my necklace and phone case to my co-worker who is also a huge Doctor Who fan. “You look like a Doctor Who companion!” She exclaimed. Oooh, to go on an adventure with the Doctor!


Pretending I’m figuring out clues is always fun.

My order actually also included a second hard plastic phone cover as well.


Doctor Who a Person of Pinterest

OK. I know I’ve done a lot of – OH MY GOD I FOUND THIS ON PINTEREST. But, honestly, the most I have time for anymore is flipping through pages of Pinterest. I’ll even admit I have a secret Wedding board. UGH! I’m one of those girls. But, I assure you it is necessary for sanity.

I left my home, my friends, and my routine for hope. For love. And while I’m believing good things will happen and have my sisters and a roof over my head, my routine is all shot to hell and back again. For someone with an anxiety disorder, that is extremely disruptive and I fight bouts of depression throughout the days. Pinterest can pull me back from dark thoughts because it brings me belief that I can eventually be in a better place to make the things I want to make, it gives me laughter when I find something silly, and it’s a small slice of my routine I am able to keep.

All that to say.  I found some cool Doctor Who things on Pinterest. Like these TARDIS flip flops. GAH! I want! My own TARDIS is stuffed out in my sister’s garage, I had to cut it in half just to get it here, and all my pictures and reminders of how to smile again are locked up in a plastic prison. To make up for that, I think my sisters are going to need to through me a Doctor Who birthday party and make one of these TARDIS pinatas, because, well, because they owe me.

TARDEx for all your shipping needs you didn’t know you had yesterday. Seriously, this should exist!😉

Hot Topic must have a license to sell, because they have a lot of Doctor Who stuff. Like this Sleeper Set for women. It actually does look comfortable.

My niece has an ice tray with star shapes, don’t I deserve this TARDIS and Dalek mold to make my own geeky ice?

I like how these people added touches of Doctor Who to their wedding. It’s a little subtle with the Rose and blue references (especially as the blue isn’t TARDIS blue), but it’s a cute idea. The huge entrance TARDIS is a nice touch.

TARDIS Dress, the 12th Doctor and More

Thanks to FM for letting me know about this awesome TARDIS dress. I like the skirt part of the dress, but I do think the corset could be a little more fitted on the woman.

Peter Capaldi has been cast as the 12th Doctor, as you probably all have heard. I’ve seen him in other Moffet productions, Doctor Who as Caecilius and on Torchwood as John Frobisher, and on World War Z. None of his roles really stand out in my head, even after reviewing them on IMDB, this is probably because he becomes his role rather than just being himself in the role. Hopefully, this portends good things. But Matt Smith will always be MY Doctor. So, I would probably be as ambivalent about any new actor in the role.

My friend Stephanie B. posted this awesome picture she took on a trip to the at Yogi Bear Jellystone Park. I❤ this so much. Thanks for sharing Stephanie!! Check out her tumblr here:
